The Federal government of Nigeria claims security agents have arrested unscrupulous elements that are connected with Boko Haram funding in Nigeria. Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu made this known on Tuesday March 30, in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.
According to reports, Shehu insisted that Nigerians would be shocked when they learned details of the investigation and how sums of money were transferred to the terrorist organisation.
“Bureaus de change that are facilitating money to terrorists. We have already worked with the UAE. Convictions have been achieved of Nigerians who are transferring money to Boko Haram terrorists and this also happens domestically. And I tell you that by the time we finish this investigation, the shocking details will surprise many Nigerians.”
He also said places of worship are used to harbour killers of security agents in the country, assuring that heads of intelligence agencies are working on it.
The presidential aide stated:
“It is shocking to many Nigerian that places of worship and farmland are places where killers of policemen, naval officers and military are being harboured. This discovery will shock you. But this is going on all over the country.”
